Advanced Handgun

Firearms Training

Class Description For Intermediate Students

This eight-hour class is for intermediate and advanced students looking to refine their skills. If you have a strong foundation, and you’re proficient in intermediate skills, this is the course for you. Building on the skills from the foundation class, this class will add stress from a timer and cardiovascular activity to shooting drills to simulate real-world self-defense environments. Students will find their limits, learn their weaknesses, and develop strategies to maintain speed and accuracy.

This class assumes you will be confident and ready to go. There will be no refreshing of basic firearm handling or marksmanship principles. This class is designed to challenge your mastery of gun handling fundamentals and test your accuracy with time, physical exertion, distance pressure.

Participants are required to have either a valid Alaska concealed carry permit, current law enforcement or military identification, or a State of Alaska background check prior to participating in this class. All students must have also take the Stage 1 class and been approved by an instructor. Please note that each platform (handgun, carbine, shotgun) has a separate training course.

“I recently took the Level 1 Pistol class with my girlfriend, who was terrified of firearms, and it was an amazing experience. I can honestly say this class really reassured, corrected, and improved our fundamentals. I trained with Steve and Danny, amazing instructors…”

“Great class and an awesome experience. The instructors took time to work one-on-one with students and help fine-tune even them most minor details to get the most of every shot. I’m looking forward to an excuse to come to Anchorage again soon.”
